If you read Up Your Ego by actually visiting the site at upyourego.com you won’t help but have noticed a cartoon of my face complete with big moustache.
It’s there because I’m taking part in a month long charity event called ‘Movember’ that will see men around the world growing a Moustache and getting sponsored for doing so.
They’re doing this to raise money for The Prostate Cancer Charity – to help research into and provide resources/education for men with Prostate Cancer.
I haven’t decided what type of moustache I’m going to grow yet – but have started the day clean shaven and will shave my face every day for the next month – with the exception of my upper lip.
At the moment I’m leaning towards a good old fashioned metal head style handlebar moustache – but I also like the idea of an old English RAF officer style one as well.
Anyway I’ve been to the bathroom mirror – razor in hand and have shaved – unfortunately I’ve got a big arsed cold sore on my lip that I ripped off with a towel just before shaving.
But I shaved, all sorted and I’m now ready for the month ahead. But what style?
Whatever I decide I’ll be posting regular updates here complete with photos and asking your opinion on what bits I should/shouldn’t shave off.
Anyway – I’ve been in the bathroom and shaved – all clean shaven and smooth for now – but it was tricky as I have a rather nasty cold sore that I ripped off with a towel just before shaving.
So I tentively attacked my face with a razor and cold water (I used all the hot water in my shower) and took a photo half way through.
I also got my daughter to take before and after photos – see them on my Flickr stream.
That’s it for now – more when a bit of growth actually starts.
